Bruno's Puggie Art At Home

"Shelley & Bruno at Home"
24 x24 pet portrait on canvas

Thanks so much to Shelley for sending us this great shot at home with Bruno. You got me blogging again ... yay! Love Love Love, that yellow wall. The colors all work great together. I would have hung the piece about 4 inches lower, but that is just me. You usually want art in the living room to be close to eye level while sitting. Of course that can create trouble when really tall people sit on the couch and lean back to the wall, bumping the artwork. Over the couch is a tough spot, in fact I have a piece over my sofa right now that is really too high. It does not help that I live with someone that is over 6ft tall ... his eye level is much higher than mine.

I am still settling in from our trip, playing with video and photos. I am back at work today and working hard to get caught up. I will be posting new art and trip pics soon.

Welcome back to Texas! Is it hot enough?! :) Bruno's portrait is fantastic and what a treat to see it in it's final "resting place"! I'm a scottie dog lover, too...I visit your site daily and am just floored by your wonderful, artistic talent. Happy Wednesday!

What a great picture! I'm going to take one of Abby's painting when we get settled in the new house. I can't wait to find the perfect spot for it.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Good to hear from some first time commenters!

Yep Allie ...Texas was a hot slap in the face after those cool mountain days. In the mountains an 80 degree afternoon will make folks sweat ... ha, that is sweater weather here. Still it is always good to be home.

Wonderful photo (and art). It looks like a shelter mag shot!

Thanks for the tip about Penland. I never heard of it.
